Beef bone marrow provides protein and calcium together, as long as you boil the bones with an acidified liquid, such as water mixed with lemon juice, wine or vinegar, to help release the calcium from the bone matrix.
The longer a bone broth cooks, the more nutritious and mineral-dense it will become. Bone broths can simmer for up to 72 hours.
The downside to bone marrow broth is that it is high in saturated fat, but you can remove the fat from the broth after the broth has cooled.
Making Beef Marrow Bone Broth
It takes 4 lb. of beef marrow bones, along with 3 to 4 more lb. of rib or neck bones to make about 1 gallon of rich bone broth. Adding 1/2 cup of vinegar or other acidic liquid, such as wine, apple cider, lemon juice or orange juice leaches the calcium and other minerals from the bones faster. It takes eight to 72 hours on a low simmer to extract the maximum amount of minerals and flavor from the beef marrow bones. You may have to add water as the bones boil, to prevent the broth from boiling away. Cool broth and skim fat from the tops.
